EuroSkills and WorldSkills

SkillELECTRIC is the only route by which young electricians can progress to the European and international Electrical Installation competitions via the WorldSkills UK network.

Those who do well in SkillELECTRIC and are age eligible* could progress to join Team UK as the Electrical Installation representative at the next EuroSkills or WorldSkills events.

WorldSkills selects the best of the best from the UK’s top apprentices and learners. Competitors are put through a rigorous accelerated development programme designed by experts. Whatever stage of the development programme an individual reaches, the training they complete is hugely beneficial to their apprenticeship or training programme and the development of their employability skills.
